NOLA Real Estate Market Reports

New Orleans West Bank Real Estate Inventory Trends

Trends in West Bank real estate can be tracked in a number of different ways, but what most people want to know is pretty basic: Is it a good time to buy or sell?

If it’s a really good time to sell, it’s going to be harder for buyers to find a place.

The opposite is true in a buyer market, when the number of available properties far outweigh the historic number of buyers in an area.

Buyer Market or Seller Market?

Generally, we consider it a seller market if the available inventory is under 6 months. Inventory around 6 months is generally an indicator of a stable market. 7 months and up put a community in a buyer market.

How are our West Bank communities performing?

They are improving, but it’s still a buyer market across the West Bank as a whole.

Algiers Market

With a year’s worth of inventory on the market right now, Algiers sellers should expect buyers to negotiate hard when making an offer on their home. Why? Because there are so many other properties to choose from…216 of them as of 4/30/15.

  • 70056 = 139 homes
